Squats: Back to Basics (and a little max testing)

Mon, 18 Jul 16

Squats: 135x10, 225x5, 275x5, 315x5, 340x1, 365x1, 315x2x5

I tested my squat back on July 9, and it was 355 and grindy.  Today was 365 and smooth.  I added another 20 after that, but didn't feel confident, so I racked it and did some back off sets.  Those 2 sets at 315 were pretty "easy", so I will up the weight to 325 next.  I'm thinking of trying some every 2nd day squatting, say heavy/light, and benching at home every day or two.  I'm going to really drive the high reps on the bench and work and making 135 seem effortless again for sets of 20, and hitting reps of 8 again on the bench with 225.
